Weekly Photo Challenge: RELIC
Does anyone write postcards anymore?
When I travelled through South-East Asia in the early 90’s there was no email let alone internet. You were lucky to even get a phone call out. Communication to anyone back home meant writing a letter or sending a postcard. This was a time that you could detach yourself from your everyday life and truly escape.
When “the Chef” and I were in El Nido almost three years ago I still felt the urge to write postcards even though there is ready access to the internet. I wasn’t surprised to find the post office was literally just a hole in the wall, a RELIC, with one lone clerk. I think she was happy to see us.
